Inspired by the powerful impact Special Olympics had on his life through his participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, combined with his family’s involvement with the trucking industry, Norm Schneiderhan, a Corporal with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, created the Truck Convoy, a one-day celebration of the trucking industry to help raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics.
Since 2001, the convoy has spread from Florida to encompass 24 states and 4 provinces. In 2012, Nova Scotia joined Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan with its first annual World’s Largest Truck Convoy. We hope that you’ll join us on September 21, 2013 to cheer on our mighty convoy.
In 2012, Special Olympics Nova Scotia was approached by a truck driver who wanted to make a difference in the province where he lived. He had heard of this “Mighty Convoy” from other drivers and was inspired to bring the event to Nova Scotia. It was through the vision of Don Mullens that today, the World’s Largest Truck Convoy has reached NS raising over $225,000 for Special Olympics with over 700 trucks taking part.
